I am using the [date] object to name recordings made in a Max patch according to the time and date they were recorded. Since, I am sorting these recordings in numeric order unfortunately the number 2 for example will show up after the number 11 even though it was recorded earlier. I need to reformat the number 2 to the number 02 instead. That way 02 sorts before 11 as it should! I tried [sprintf] and other text number formatting, but a zero on the front of a number always disappears! help please.
